This seems to work better than stitiching across, for some reason. It may take a bit of pratice to apply only a small bead of glue instead of a big glob.

Added note: This works best when you shorten a zipper from the bottom, and I generally do it on plastic coil or invisible zippers.

Way cool idea!!! And here I only thought glue guns were useful for hems!! (But only when I've run out of staples...)

Phillis, Are you shortening from the top or the bottom of the zipper? Is it a regular coil zipper?
